In Honor of The Feast of Tabernacles

15 October 2016 /14 Tishrei 5777


On 15th day of the seventh Jewish month of Tishrei, God commanded His people, along with "every one that is left of all the nations which came against Jerusalem" to keep this Feast Day, at the appointed time.

This is yet to be, but please consider this very revealing passage.


Zechariah 14:12-19 "And this shall be the plague wherewith the LORD will smite all the people that have fought against Jerusalem; Their flesh shall consume away while they stand upon their feet, and their eyes shall consume away in their holes, and their tongue shall consume away in their mouth.

And it shall come to pass in that day, that a great tumult from the LORD shall be among them; and they shall lay hold every one on the hand of his neighbour, and his hand shall rise up against the hand of his neighbour.

And Judah also shall fight at Jerusalem; and the wealth of all the heathen round about shall be gathered together, gold, and silver, and apparel, in great abundance.

And so shall be the plague of the horse, of the mule, of the camel, and of the ass, and of all the beasts that shall be in these tents, as this plague.

And it shall come to pass, that every one that is left of all the nations which came against Jerusalem shall even go up from year to year to worship the King, the LORD of hosts, and to keep the feast of tabernacles.

And it shall be, that whoso will not come up of all the families of the earth unto Jerusalem to worship the King, the LORD of hosts, even upon them shall be no rain.

And if the family of Egypt go not up, and come not, that have no rain; there shall be the plague, wherewith the LORD will smite the heathen that come not up to keep the feast of tabernacles.

This shall be the punishment of Egypt, and the punishment of all nations that come not up to keep the feast of tabernacles."


In honor of this special time, I would like to share an article that I wrote exactly ten years ago, one day before the Feast of Tabernacles. It is a bit lengthy, but I hope you will bear with me, and prayerfully consider "the message" God gave me then, yet is even more prevalent Today!


The LORD Shall Judge His People

Originally Published: 6 October 2006 / 14 Tishrei 5767

Latest Update: 28 February 2010 / 14 Adar 5770

The "Apostasy" is no longer a future event, but it is right now! And the leadership of the Southern Baptist Convention (SBC), are responsible for leading the way into the Darkness, and away from the "True Light."

The Evil One has literally "hoodwinked" unsuspecting souls into believing his countless lies and deceptions, which is why so many people who claim to love and serve the LORD, are "falling away" from the Truth.

The following reveals why Satan has such a stronghold in the churches, and I hope you will prayerfully consider all that I Am presenting here. The letters are verbatim except for minor editorial changes for clarity, and I have changed some names, but God's Message is still the same.

"22 January 1994

To the Staff and Members of [a SBC] Church,

I had truly hoped I would not be required to write this letter, but due to the reluctance of those in leadership positions to address the concerns I have brought to their attention, the LORD, has directed me to bring up several issues with you.

You may feel I have no right to say what I Am about to say, but my prayer is that you will humble yourselves before the LORD, and if He impresses upon you that I Am speaking the Truth, please take heed to what Almighty God may be speaking to your heart.

I would like to share some excerpts from a letter, dated 28 May 1993, that I sent to our Pastor almost a year ago, so that you will have the opportunity to fully understand the intentions of my heart.

He received this letter the day before he was to preach a prepared sermon on 'Spiritual Adultery' as noted in the weekly bulletin. It must have been one of the hardest sermons he has ever had to preach, especially since it is the very condition of this Church, of which the LORD, confirmed by this letter I sent to him.

My purpose in bringing this important matter to your attention is in no way meant to condemn, irritate, anger, embarrass, or to shame anyone; even though that may be the end result. If you knew me, you would know that one of my greatest desires is for people to see the Truth, and then live it out in their daily lives as God intended. I just thank God, that He has a plan in place to save those who genuinely love the Truth!

Letter to the Pastor of this SBC Church dated 28 May 1993

'Dear Pastor,

I Am reluctantly writing this letter to you, but I feel very strongly that the LORD God, is directing me to do so; and I must do what I feel He is saying regardless of my apprehension...

Since my experience of 28 February 1993 my relationship with the LORD God, has been completely different. It is much more real and I see things from a completely different perspective.

I realize that God is who I get my strength, my support, my encouragement, and all of my abilities from.

He is the source of the love, joy, and peace in my life. And I Am no longer controlled by what men think; only what God thinks.

It is wonderful to walk with others that are like-minded, but my total dependence is on the LORD Jesus Christ, and Him alone...

God taught me through my experience of 'Walking With the Enemy,' how to look at the things not seen with our natural eyes, and see them with 'spiritual eyes.' And because those things are Eternal, they will affect our lives forever.

I have been very blessed by your sermons, especially on Wednesday nights. The LORD, has given you a wonderful ability to get the point across where people can understand. He has put you in such a position to be able to reach many people for His Kingdom, but the LORD has much more in store for you and your ministry, if you are willing.

I pray that you will not misread my intentions because my only desire is that you truly experience all the love, joy, and peace that the LORD God above has for you. The LORD, so desires to have a deep, personal, and intimate relationship with you...

Very soon after I came back to the Church, [after being lured away by a Bible Study/Cult group, the LORD, brought to my attention that you do have a sincere love for Him and His word, but you have 'secret sins' hiding in your heart that you will not face.

Those sins are hindering your relationship with your heavenly Father, and He said they will cause you to stumble if they go unacknowledged, and it will affect your ministry, and already has to a large degree.

You need to allow the LORD, to reveal the 'hidden sins' of your heart, and then repent of them, so He can forgive you and cleanse you of the unrighteousness that is keeping you from having the relationship that God so desires to have with you.

Because you are a Christian Pastor, you have a God given responsibility to lead many people to Him--and that is truly what this is all about--revealing the Kingdom of God to a lost, dying, and going to Hell world if they don't stop and see where they are headed!

God wants to speak to you, not only through His word, but through His Spirit...He wants you to be open to hear Him clearly so that you will be able to warn God's people about the tactics of the Enemy.

Satan is working overtime these days, because he knows that his Time is coming to a close very soon...





Now is the Time for bold men and women of God to stand up and proclaim the Truth regardless of the opposition. It is Time to make your stand and take sides. Anybody that is on the fence is going to be knocked off and the fence is coming down.

The LORD, says the doors are fixing to close. The Day is almost gone and it's Time to warn people while There’s Still Time. He has impressed upon me that it's Time for the true men of God to wake up and see the reality of what is going on.

Most men are off chasing the world through the lust of their flesh and the lust of their eyes, and the pride of life is keeping them from truly acknowledging God and putting Him first.

If only men and fathers would realize that while they are out there in the world, blinded by the sin in their own lives, that Satan is secretly seducing and deceiving their wives and children that they claim to love so much...

The problem is that they are not loving their wives in the way God has ordained in His word. He says put Me first in all your ways and He will take care of the rest...

Oh yes, there are many religious people in our country, and we talk a lot about God, but the heart of this nation is far from the LORD God Almighty! I saw the little boys raising the flag at [the] Elementary [school] the other day, and tears just came to my eyes. When I was growing up the American flag stood for freedom, truth, and justice, but I Am so sad to say that that is no longer true.

There is such a grief in my heart at the condition of this country that we live in...We claim to be a Christian nation under God. What a mockery Satan has made of the people of God! And we have, for the most part, sat back and let it happen.

Satan is out there taking the place of men and fathers, and offering a false love and false peace to those who are starved for the love and affection that husbands and fathers should be providing.

Unknown to the victim is that the ministers of Satan are intent on destroying their lives. Satan gets such a satisfaction out of causing a saint to stumble and fall, but God is in the business of restoration! And only He can truly heal the wounds of the heart...


And it can begin with you!

Concerning your building survey--the LORD, has said that if the men of God at this Church don't learn to worship Almighty God in Truth by His Holy Spirit, then there will not be a building to survey in the future.

I know this is a very bold letter and I Am truly sorry if I appear to be prideful or arrogant, but that is not the case here. I do respect you very much as a minister of the LORD Jesus Christ, and I Am sorry if you are offended by the words of this letter.

And if I Am wrong in my perceptions, I pray you will forgive my insensitivity to the LORD. My strongest desire is to please the LORD God Almighty, even if it displeases men, but I don't get satisfaction out of hurting people or causing pain.

What’s in your heart is between you and the LORD, and He is your only Judge...I just pray that you will consider all that I have said and go before the LORD, with a sincere and repentant heart and allow Him to speak to you through His Holy Spirit, who will always bear witness to the Truth of His word.

I love you and your family very much, and I will always pray for you...May you truly experience the depths of God's love in such a way as you never have before. And may God pour out an abundance of His grace and mercy and peace upon you and your family as you serve Him in Truth.'

End of Letter to the Pastor dated 28 May 1993

Continuing with Letter to the Staff and Members, 22 January 1994

Many of you may not understand why I have taken it upon myself to bring these things to your attention, but like I mentioned in my letter to the Pastor, I Am a completely different person since the memorable evening of 28 February Nineteen Hundred and Ninety Three.

I would like to repeat the Prophecy that was given on that night... And I pray you are not one who loves the Darkness, rather than the Light!

Prophecy of 28 February 1993 / 8 Adar 5753

'Many things you have been taught here has been done in secrecy and in Darkness. You have been taught truth mixed with lies and the LORD, says it will go on no longer!

And you, Bill, are the one who has taught the lies and the LORD, says it will go on no longer in this home. And the LORD, is giving you a chance to turn from your sin. And He is so forgiving that He will not hold your sin against you if you repent. And if you do not, you will die!

And He is my Husband! I love Him with a love that can not be broken. I love you too, but with a brotherly love. And I beg you to repent!

Everything you have learned here has been tainted with evil and you can't hold on to any of it. The only thing that you can hold on to is the fact that Jesus Christ died for you, and by His mighty power God raised Him from the dead.

And if you believe that in your heart and claim Him as LORD, He will put the same Spirit that raised Jesus from the dead inside of you to lead you and guide you into the Truth!

Light will overshadow Darkness and darkness will not be able to stand in the presence of God!'

End of Prophecy

God has chosen "the weak things of the world to confound the things which are mighty," and He uses the "things which are not, to bring to nought things that are:" so that men can not glory in them "selves."

Many of you may have a hard time accepting anything I have to say, particularly the men, since I Am a woman who holds no position of importance or influence in this Church, or our society for that matter, but please don't allow that to stop you from receiving the Truth.

There are things that I could bring to your attention that are against the very precepts of God's word but are taught and practiced as truth in this Church. And due to the complacency that is very prevalent in this congregation Satan has been able to operate virtually unhindered.

The lies keep God's people from worshipping Him in Spirit and in Truth, and because of the widespread apathy that permeates this SBC Church nobody is willing to make a stand for anything, much less the Truth!

Irrespective of all my other area's of concern, the one thing that has caused me to be so disheartened with the leaders of this congregation is due to the stand that was made in regard to Freemasonry, especially in light of all that has been revealed about this "secret organization."

After [our Pastor] came back from the Southern Baptist Convention he stated during the Wednesday night prayer meeting on 23 June 1993, that it had been decided at the Convention that individual churches could choose if they wanted to be involved in Freemasonry. He said he was in agreement with the position the Southern Baptist Convention had taken, and he hoped the subject would not be brought up again.

However, God has not allowed me to remain silent on this very serious issue taking place among His people, and I believe it to be the root cause of why Satan has such a stronghold in this SBC Church, and any congregation whose members are apart of this covert organization.

Since you, along with many others, are most likely unaware of the Truth about Freemasonry, I will enlighten you about this highly secretive club, as revealed at the 1993 Annual Meeting of Southern Baptist Churches.


Findings of the Southern Baptist Convention

Houston, Texas, June 15-17, 1993

"Motion Concerning Freemasonry

'In the annual session of the Southern Baptist Convention, June 9-11, 1992, the following motion was approved: The Southern Baptist Convention in annual session June 9-11, 1992 at Indianapolis, Indiana, directs the Interfaith Witness Dept. of the Home Mission Board to study the compatibility with Christianity and Southern Baptist doctrine of the organization known variously as the Masonic Lodge, Masonry, Freemasonry, and or Ancient and Accepted Right [sic] of Freemasonry. The study is to encompass any and all branches and or lodges thereof. Furthermore, the convention charges the Home Mission Board with the responsibility of bringing a report with recommendation to the Convention which is to meet in Houston, Texas, June 1993.'



[Emphasis is mine. C. Read]

We commend the Masonic Order for its many charitable endeavors as the operation of twenty two Shriners hospitals, nineteen orthopedic hospitals, and three burns institutes with noteworthy success in treatment, research, and education, often providing free treatment to children under eighteen years of age...These, with many other charitable and benevolent endeavors, are commendable.

We acknowledge that many outstanding Christians and Southern Baptists now are, and in the past have been, Masons...We recognize that many of the tenets and teachings of some Grand Lodges could be considered compatible with, and even supportive of, Christian faith and practice, such as the strong emphasis on honesty, integrity, industry, and character and the insistence that every member believe in God...

We conclude that many tenets and teachings of Freemasonry are not compatible with Christianity or Southern Baptist doctrine, including:

1. The prevalent use of offensive concepts, titles, and terms such as 'Worshipful Master' for the leader of a lodge; references to their buildings as mosques, shrines, or temples; and the use of words such as 'Abaddon' and 'Jah-Bul-On', the so-called secret name of god. To many, these terms are not only offensive but sacrilegious.

2. The use of archaic, offensive rituals and so-called 'bloody oaths' or 'obligations'...

3. The recommended readings, in pursuance of advanced degrees, of religions and philosophies, which are undeniably pagan and /or occultic...

4. The reference to the Bible placed on the altar of the lodge as the 'furniture of the lodge,' comparing it to the square and compass rather than giving it the supreme place in the lodge.

5. The prevalent use of the term 'light,' which some may understand as a reference to salvation rather than knowledge or truth.

6. The implication that salvation may be attained by one's good works...

7. The heresy of universalism (the belief all people will eventually be saved), which permeates the writings of many Masonic authors, which is a doctrine inconsistent with New Testament teaching.


In Summary

In light of the fact that many tenets and teachings of Freemasonry are not compatible with Christianity and Southern Baptist doctrine, while others are compatible with Christianity and Southern Baptist doctrine, we therefore recommend that consistent with our denomination's deep convictions regarding the priesthood of the believer and the autonomy of the local church, membership in a Masonic Order be a matter of personal conscience. Therefore we exhort Southern Baptist's to prayerfully and carefully evaluate Freemasonry in light of the Lordship of Christ, the teachings of the Scripture, and the findings of this report, as led by the Holy Spirit of God.'

End of Excerpts from the SBC Freemasonry Report of 1993

The SBC Home Mission Board, determined that 'Abaddon' is the secret name of the 'god' of Freemasonry, and I would like you to especially note the only place where 'Abaddon' appears in the King James Bible:

Revelation 9:11 'And they had a king over them, which is the angel of the bottomless pit, whose name in the Hebrew tongue is Abaddon, but in the Greek tongue hath his name Apollyon.'

[My original letter to this church included the writings of a former Mason which helped to bolster my case against this "secretive organization," but my Testimony should be enough for any reasonable person to see that Freemasonry is absolutely incompatible with true Christianity.]

The ministers of Satan must target Christians and 'good men' to give them creditability, otherwise it would be obvious who they really serve. As for the 'many charitable and benevolent endeavors' they are praised for--it is just a 'front' so people will not see through to their evil deeds.

Due to my experience of Walking With the Enemy, I have found that just because you renounce your involvement in one particular aspect of the Devil's lies and deceptions, doesn’t mean he won't try some other means in order to get you back under his control and influence...

Many of you may feel that you are already committed to Jesus Christ, and it is true for some, but for those of you who have lingering doubts as to whether or not you are truly "saved," please seriously consider the consequences should you disregard God's Voice...

My main concern at this Time is whether or not this SBC Church is going to stand up and boldly denounce the wickedness that is in your midst, or will you continue in sin, apathy, and outright disobedience to God?

I hope you will consider all I have spoken, and please don’t dismiss this. This is extremely important, and this Church has been put on notice! It is Time for you to stand up for what is true, right, and just.

Finally, I hope you will prayerfully consider these passages...

II Corinthians 6:14-7:1 'Be ye not unequally yoked together with unbelievers: for what fellowship hath righteousness with unrighteousness? And what communion hath Light with Darkness? And what concord (or agreement) hath Christ with Belial? Or what part hath he that believeth with an infidel (or unbeliever)? And what agreement hath the temple of God with idols?

For ye are the temple of the living God; as God hath said; I will dwell in them, and walk in them; and I will be their God, and they shall be My people. Wherefore come out from among them, and be ye separate, saith the LORD, and touch not the unclean thing; and I will receive you, and will be a Father unto you, and ye shall be My sons and daughters, saith the LORD Almighty.

Having therefore these promises, dearly beloved, let us cleanse ourselves from all filthiness of the flesh and spirit, perfecting holiness in the fear of God.'

Ecclesiastes 3:16-17 'And moreover I saw under the sun the place of judgment, that wickedness was there; and the place of righteous, that iniquity was there. I said in mine heart, God shall judge the righteous and the wicked: for there is a Time there for every purpose and for every work.'

I Peter 4:17-18 'For the Time is come that Judgment must begin at the House of God: and if it begin at us, what shall the end be of them that obey not the Gospel of God? And if the righteous scarcely be saved, where shall the ungodly and the sinner appear?'

Hebrews 10:26-30 'For if we sin willfully after that we have received the knowledge of the Truth, there remaineth no more sacrifice for sins, but a certain fearful looking for of Judgment and fiery indignation, which shall devour the adversaries.

He that despised Moses’ law died without mercy under two or three witnesses: of how much sorer punishment, suppose ye, shall he be thought worthy, who hath trodden under foot the Son of God, and hath counted the blood of the covenant, wherewith He was sanctified, an unholy thing, and hath done despite unto the Spirit of grace?

For we know Him that hath said, Vengeance belongeth unto Me, I will recompense, saith the LORD.



A servant of the Most High God and

the LORD Jesus Christ,

C. Read"


Signed and Sealed in the presence of a witness 1/25/1994

End of Letter To the Staff and Members of [this SBC] Church

I Am sure I made some enemies after sending out all those letters, especially among Masons. But what is so disconcerting to me, is that even after the SBC annual report revealed that Freemasonry is of the Devil, the leadership continued to allow its members to be apart of it!

I even shared my concerns and my letters with an evangelist who had visited this church on 18 September 1994, but it didn't seem to matter. That evening he had preached a sermon about the "Day of the LORD," and how Jesus' return "will come as a thief in the night; in the which the heavens shall pass away with a great noise...," and I Am certain that those who ignore the warnings, will be totally unprepared for that Day!

I believe there are many sincere Christians within this SBC congregation, but my family and I could no longer remain in fellowship with them because of the leadership's unwillingness to reject Freemasonry.

Due to the Apostasy, churches that were once "alive" have become spiritually dead, and people are "falling away" in such great numbers. I know what it is like to be blind to the Truth, but feel that you are right, all the while dying inside and not knowing why. I just thank God that He saved me from the power of Darkness, and chose to spare my life. And He will do the same for anyone who truly loves and worships Him too.

The battle lines have been drawn in this war for the "saints" of God, and the LORD God Almighty, commands for His people to stand against the lies of the Devil, and to stand up for Him without compromise. And it is my sincere hope and prayer that I will be among those who are standing on the side of Truth at the return of Jesus Christ, when He will finally come to Judge all people on the "Great and Dreadful Day" of the LORD!

Addendum To The LORD Shall Judge His People

Updated: 23 February 2010 / 10 Adar 5770

I researched the Southern Baptist Convention's website for information on the Resolution from the June 1993 meeting regarding Freemasonry to see if they changed their views. I could not find the actual Resolution, but Freemasonry was addressed in their FAQ's. Please consider some of these statements I have highlighted.

From the SBC's Website as of 12 February 2010

Q&A #19 "What is the SBC's stance on 'Freemasonry?' In its 1993 report, the SBC stated that there were aspects of Freemasonry that are incompatible with Christianity. The main conclusion of the report states: We conclude that many tenets and teachings of Freemasonry are not compatible with Christianity or Southern Baptist doctrine."

Q&A #21 "The Southern Baptist Convention makes official statements regarding specific issues by means of resolutions passed at our annual gatherings each June. Southern Baptist polity views these resolutions as expressions of opinions or concern which are representative of the messengers attending the meeting, but are not binding upon any individual church or successive Convention."

Q&A #5 "...According to our constitution, if a church no longer makes a bona fide contribution to the Convention's work, or if it acts to "affirm, approve, or endorse homosexual behavior," it no longer complies with the Constitution of the Southern Baptist Convention and is not permitted to send messengers to the annual meeting. These, however, are the only explicitly stated instances in which the SBC has the prerogative to take action. Failure to remain in "friendly cooperation" would also disqualify a church from sending messengers, and is obviously more of a subjective test."

Based on the official "polity views" of the Southern Baptist Convention, the "sin of Sodom" is "the only explicitly stated instances in which the SBC has the prerogative to take action" against its member churches; but alliances and agreements with “anti-Christian” churches, ministries, or organization is not reason enough to “disqualify a church!”

I Am absolutely outraged that the SBC leadership continues to remain uncommitted on this vital issue, and has not denounced  Freemasonry! Nonetheless, the Final Judgment will come, and I say, "Woe unto those who call themselves Christians, yet do not follow Christ!"

Please go to The LORD Shall Judge His People to read the original message that was updated on 28 February 2010 / 14 Adar 5770.
